YMCA Child Care

Providing a strong foundation for learning in a safe environment.

YMCA Child Care supports the healthy growth and development of children and promotes a lifelong appreciation for learning. Our YMCA Playing to Learn curriculum prepares our youngest children for academic success in the areas of language and literacy, math, science and technology and the arts. Our before and after school programs provide school-age children with a safe, supervised and active experience that fosters social skills and develops a sense of community.

Early Learning & Care (1.5 to 3.8 years)
YMCA Child Care Centres operate Monday to Friday from 7:00 am until 6:00 pm, year-round. Programs are full-day, either full time or in some cases part time. Our qualified early childhood educators facilitate play experiences that will help your child develop foundational skills in language and literacy, mathematics, science and technology and the arts. Nutritious meals and snacks are provided.

Before and After School Care (3.8 to 12 years)
Before and After School programs operate before school from 7:00 am until school starts and after school until 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday, September to June. Our qualified staff provide an active, engaging, fun and child directed program.  Nutritious snacks are offered before and after school.

P.A. Day and Holiday Programs (3.8 to 12 years)
Full-day child care is provided for school-age children on school board P.A. days, Winter Break and March Break. Registration for P.A. days and holiday programs is separate from before and after school registration, and is available online and in person. Registration will close two weeks before each program date.
